XMPP4R takes a really long time to authenticate with my Jabber server. Maybe it's just me though… No idea. This shouldn't run more than once an hour or so, whatever; shouldn't matter.
$ sudo gem install technomancy-watcher_in_the_water --source=http://gems.github.com
Finish live tests?
Just send a diff over IM?
Only look at a given XPath?
